Health Savings Account

Health Savings Account
With health insurance premiums on the rise, you can protect yourself against high or unexpected medical bills, by accumulating funds in a Dillard’s Federal Credit Union’s Health Savings Account.

A Health Savings account (HSA) is a tax-exempt trust or custodial account established exclusively for the purpose of paying or reimbursing qualified medical expenses for you, your spouse and your dependents.

Eligibility

Who is eligible to open an HSA? An HSA can be established by any individual who:
Is currently covered under a qualified High Deductible Health Plan
 
Has no other first-dollar medical coverage
 
Is not enrolled in Medicare
 
Cannot be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s tax return
Could not have received Veteran’s Affairs medical benefits within the past 3 months
 
Does not have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA)

Contributions

The maximum 2016 contribution limits are $3,350.00 single coverage and $6,750.00 family coverage.


A qualified high deductible plan must meet specific requirements. The 2016 requirements for the plan to be considered are:

Minimum deductible: $1,350.00 single coverage.
$2,600.00 family coverage.

Accessing Your HSA Funds

Your DFCU HSA offers several convenient methods for accessing your funds at any time. You will receive a Health Savings Account debit card that can be used to make your qualified medical purchases or payments. Where debit cards are not an option, you can pay for services and products with an HSA check.
